2:01 pm
"the five" starts right now. >> raising the debt ceiling simply gives our country the ability to pay the bills that congress has already racked up. i want to emphasize that. the debt ceiling does not determine how much more money we can spend. it simply authorizes us to pay the bills we already have racked up. >> did you hear that? that was president obama just a few hours ago, saying at this debt ceiling wasn't going to allow us to spend more going forward. you know, there's a problem, because it does. that's exactly what it does. so mr. president, either you're disingenuous to the american people or you're not smart enough to run the country. the debt ceiling is for future spending. your tracks and spend checkbook, that's what you want, you want more credit on it for future spending. step away from the teleprompter, roll up your sleeves and get to work cutting spending. >> are you kidding me?
2:02 pm
>> not kidding one bit. >> first of all, when i called d that, i told the producer to cut that piece of tape. >> you clearly don't get it. >> what's wrong? >> it's called debacle. the reality of the debt ceiling is to pay for bills that are coming due approved by congressing going back to -- one to the nixon administration, paying off bond interest on reagan's bills. >> bob, they want to raise the debt -- by the way, if all you wanted to do was pay off prior spending, raise it $200 or $300 billion. walk away. >> if you look at obama's spending projections for obama care, all this other stuff he's proposed, yes, he needs that debt ceiling raised so he can spend it on everything he's proposed already. look, i think this is has been so bad for this president.
2:03 pm
i thought he displayed a lack of leadership before this, but i will say this is epic. >> you guys have got go back to civic classes. you don't get it. the debt is to pay for past spending by congresses. >> then pay it off and stop. >> there's no rule, bob, that says you can pay stuff off first and then spend later. don't have to be tied together. can i just say something? i happen to agree with the democrats, when i keep hearing about the debt ceiling, that i feel we're held hostage year. >> you look upset. >> you're always held hostage. >> he doesn't learn. >> that was a cue to the producers to run a package. >> oh, boy. >> oh, was that what that that . >> they are once again holding

2:08 pm
>> john boehner had support of 90% of members in his congress. he was going to pass the bill without earmarks. that means doing business old school, they're not doing that now. look, he's had to wrangle his members. he deserves a lot of credit. >> he does, but you would admit if he went down to defeat on this thing that cantor would be on his tail. >> yes, i agree with that, bob, but he would never let it go down. >> i'll give you this, he had to take on his own tea party. i give him credit for -- i just say that we're now you're the among the minorities of the minorities of the minorities. >> this man went to the house floor and called the tea party -- granted, he read from a "wall street journal" op-ed, but called the tea party hobbits. he's driving the wedge further. >> by the way, rush limbaugh is
